BBQ Jackfruit Stuffed Potato Rolls

Healthy Slow Cooking

These tasty potato rolls are filled with a fun surprise: saucy and savory BBQ Jackfruit! Bake a batch, and be delighted by the combination of flavors and textures. You may never want a plain old dinner roll again.

BBQ Jackfruit Sweet Potato Skins

Flax & Sugar

Move over, marshmallows. This savory way to serve sweet potatoes is sure to become a new favorite. Layers of BBQ Jackfruit, quinoa, black beans, avocado and microgreens make them as beautiful as they are delicious.

Jackfruit Wedge Salad

Its elegant presentation and classic flavors make this wedge a great way to start a coursed dinner. For a less formal version, chop the lettuce and toss it all in your favorite salad bowl to serve family-style with the rest of the meal.

Oyster Mushroom Jackfruit Pot Roast

Vegan With Curves

Let’s move on to the main course, shall we? With a toothsome texture and savory, complex flavor, this plant-based pot roast is perfect for a special occasion. Thanksgiving tip: Skip the baby potatoes, and instead ladle the whole thing over mashed potatoes.

Vegan Slow Cooked Red Wine Braised Jackfruit

Rabbit and Wolves

Wine-braised anything feels fancy, and this jackfruit dish lives up to expectations. It’s also easy to make; just toss the ingredients into your slow cooker, and let them do their thing while you prep other dishes (or relax!)

Cajun Jackfruit and Collard Greens

Making space on your plate for greens is easy when the greens are this good. Meaty jackfruit, roasted tomatoes, miso and spices pack in a ton of flavor, while red kidney beans add some extra plant protein.

Vegan Jackfruit Crab Cakes

What to bring to the potluck when all the classics have been covered? “Crab” cakes made with our Lightly Seasoned Jackfruit are sure to impress. Whether you prefer to serve them as an appetizer, hearty side, or alternative to the main course is entirely up to you.

Pumpkin Jackfruit Curry
